Big Grove Tavern is the first true Farm-to-Table restaurant in the Champaign-Urbana area. Chef Jessica Gorin and Sous Chefs Terrah King and Tomasz Nilges draw inspiration from the local farmer's market and utilize exceptional ingredients at the height of their season. Each menu reflects our solid commitment to using naturally-raised and organic ingredients sourced directly from local farms and farmers' markets.<br /><br />Our name comes from a large stand of trees called, “The Big Grove,” which offered shelter from the wide open prairie skies during the earliest days of our community. Now known as Busey Woods, you can still see the remnant of Big Grove in Urbana today.<br /><br />Eat, drink and think local.<br /><br />
